Encoded Archival Context - Corporate Bodies, Persons, and Families (EAC-CPF) #1384

  • Monday, June 24, 2013
  • 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
  • National Archives at New York City

The Archivists Round Table is pleased to co-sponsor the following workshop with the Society of American Archivists.

How can EAC-CPF enhance your institution’s records–and how can you get started using it? In this workshop you’ll learn how to create EAC-CPF records, with hands-on application of the elements to existing data; discuss balancing existing data with additional data components as part of an implementation strategy; and examine existing projects to consider how EAC-CPF may be implemented locally, regionally, or nationally.

Upon completing this workshop you’ll have:

  • Knowledge of the structure and content of the EAC-CPF standard and the companion content standard ISAAR (CPF);
  • Explored the metadata scheme design, including elements and attributes defined to reflect that design:
    • XML techniques used to incorporate data from allied standards
    • Current XML techniques leveraged in the standard;
  • Created EAC-CPF record content from existing data structures, such as the Library of Congress Name Authority File, United List of Artists Names, biographical resources, and other related sources; and
  • Exposure to EAC–CPF projects underway in the United States and internationally.

Who should attend? Practicing archivists who are interested in the development and design of the EAC–CPF standard, who want to learn more about this standard, and who want to consider how it could be implemented in their repositories or consortia.

Workshop attendees must bring a laptop with them to participate successfully in this workshop.
